Horizontal or vertical shaft? Could it have been designed for using a belt pulley, like a V or flat belt?

It probably did. I'm not sure what that one is probably mid 70s such and such. Looks like a Penny's model...maybe a bird or cat built bike..

If you are a skinny guy. 3.5hp might get you around but at 235lbs a 3.5hp on a bike wont get me rolling without using my feet to shove off. A 5hp will throw me off......hard to believe 1.5hp makes that much difference.

We decided to fix it up for my nephew for his birthday so it getting a 3hp predator since they have holes I can use for a chain guard
